Dozens of youngsters at a number of Lochaber schools joined last Friday’s national schools strike calling on politicians to do more to tackle climate change.

It included Lochaber High School pupil, Holly Gillibrand, pictured above, with school friend and parents, as well as primary youngsters at Banavie and Spean Bridge primaries.

Holly’s growing profile as a young environmental activist thanks to appearances in the local and national press, has been boosted further with interviews for television broadcasters such as the BBC, STV and Channel 4.
